    Default Odds & Ends...

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Quotes[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, on play-calling in the wake of constant flux on the offensive line, particularly in-game injuries:

    "You can't change what your game plan is, you just expect the next guy to step up and play, and it gets taxing after awhile when it happens every **** week."

    Steelers inside linebacker James Farrior, on Troy Polamalu's play (interception, tackle for loss, two passes defensed) in the 35-3 win over the Raiders:

    "I don't know if he free-lanced more, but I think he's one of the most competitive guys on the team. And (the 39-26 loss to the Patriots) gave us a lot of motivation to show that we're not that type of team."

    Polamalu, on the NFL's crackdown on dangerous hits:

    "When I'm playing, I'm not thinking of a fine when I'm lining up a hit."

    Steelers wideout Mike Wallace, who is on pace for a 1,214-yard receiving season, which would be the eighth-best in team history:

    "I always set the bar real high. There are crazy numbers that I think about."

    [HIGH-LIGHT]THREE TO WATCH[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    STEVE JOHNSON, Bills WR

    Former seventh-round draft pick has emerged as the Bills' top target; has three games with at least 137 receiving yards

    PAUL POSLUSZNY, Bills LB

    Hopewell High and Penn State graduate is among the NFL leaders in tackles with 88

    JONATHAN SCOTT, Steelers OT

    Returns to Buffalo as the protector of Ben Roethlisberger's blind side; started eight games for the Bills last season, but they let him leave as an unrestricted free agent.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]BY THE NUMBERS[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    7 -- Steelers wins against the Bills in the teams' last eight meetings

    26 -- Active NFL players that have suited up for at least 200 games, including Steelers linebacker James Farrior

    39 -- Career games that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has posted a passer rating of at least 100

    163.5 -- Rushing yards the Bills are yielding per game, the most in the NFL

    245.1 -- Passing yards Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has averaged in eight games

    [HIGH-LIGHT]THREE QUESTIONS[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    with Steelers wide receiver Antwaan Randle El

    Coming out of college as a star quarterback, how much convincing did it take for you to switch to wide receiver?

    "My whole dream growing up was to play professional ball, whether it was football, basketball or baseball. I got drafted to play baseball, and when that didn't happen, I wasn't going to miss my second opportunity for any reason and I didn't want it to be, 'Oh, he's too short,' so I declared myself a wide receiver. I got to the (NFL) combine and they wanted to see me as a quarterback."

    Do you think you could have been a successful quarterback in this league?

    "No question. I have the arm strength, I know I can read coverages and I can lead my team. You can have all the qualities when it comes to throwing and even running, but if you don't have the leadership, you can't do it, and I know I have it."

    When was the last time Thanksgiving wasn't also a work day for you?

    "That's just how it's been, go to work and come home and enjoy your family. But you've got to be thankful because we've got Christmas off this year."

    Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey said it's unlikely that he will need an MRI on his left knee.

    Pouncey left in the second half, but the injury does not appear serious. It's great news for a front five that has been decimated by injuries this year.

    That means we're good for 78.4 yards rushing.

    LoL! ... I hope this game against Buffalo cures a few of our rushing ills... But in reality, we're not doing too bad, and are ranked at #11 with an average of 118.0 ypg.

    You mean other than looking like the offspring of Freddy Krueger and C. Montgomery Burns?
